My self-summary
I tend to make friends with people who aren't content to coast through life, but instead work hard for whatever is going to bring them richness and fullness. In that vein, I'm incredibly driven, striving to better myself and work for the dream. I can also be very laid-back and relaxed, and bring a little humor to everyone around me, even if it's at my own expense.

I spent a good solid chunk of my 20's after university working jobs I didn't love, living in places I wasn't happy with, and letting the amazing things in life pass by me unnoticed. I had a change of heart a few years ago and moved to LA, and now I've got the most fulfilling career I could ask for, working with people who value my input and creativity, a bright future, and the ability to be present for life on a level that I hadn't known before.

My life has been in "building mode" for awhile, with starting a new career, getting a new car, getting in shape, etc, and I'd wanted to avoid getting into a relationship if I couldn't fully invest in it. I'm not the sorta guy that will be in a relationship just for the sake of having a gf. Instead I'd like to find something where we light each other up and inspire each other to be our best selves.

Now I'm at a pretty nice plateau and want to make room for dating and romance. I know that's asking a lot and sounds kind of intense, but for now I'd love to get my feet wet since it's been a while since I've done any dating.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm doing motion graphics artwork and video editing for a small digital marketing startup. It's a lot of animation, special effects, and a great creative outlet. It's so much fun and I get to learn new things, meet people, and there's always something different to do every day. It keeps me really engaged.

Before that, I lived in Seattle and worked for 5 years in fine dining. I went to Culinary school after attending University.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why there are upwards-facing icicles on the ice cubes in my ice cube trays. I can't figure it out! I have a few theories. Don't tell me and kill the mystery though.
On a typical Friday night I am
Keeping it low key, getting ready for a Saturday beach day, some new adventure, or just chilling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was little, my parents called me Piggin Gibonski Hansonoffski. :/

You want to have some genuine connection. I enjoy strong willed women who know what they want in life and are in pursuit of their dreams.
